Scenario 1
The website for EcoFriendly Travel is outdated. The marketing department has provided you with some images they would like to see incorporated into the home page. They have also requested that the site be predominately green and blue, in keeping with the ecology theme. They have given you a photo of one of EcoFriendly’s travel guides on a mountain bike, as well as several other photos representing various featured trips. The trip photos will need to be grouped together in a visual sense, as the user will be able to click on them to go to pages with additional trip information. The odd-ball photo is the guide on the bike, and you think it might add visual interest to break out of the rectangular box concept. You have created a quick thumbnail image with some preliminary layout ideas. You will need to prepare your assets before you create a more finished comprehensive (comp) of the home page. The guide on the bike will need to be isolated from the background before you can use the image.

1. Open womanbicyclist.psd.
2. Select the Background Eraser tool and adjust the follow settings
a) Select the Sampling: Continuous icon.
b) From the Limits menu, select Contiguous.
c) In the Tolerance field, type 30%
3. Draw around the bicyclist to isolate her from the background. Keep the center of the tool on the background color, and pixels similar in color to the background will be erased. Experiment with various settings. (The goal is to erase the ENTIRE background, “Basically, erase the background of the image, but keep the bike and the woman intact and change her blouse color to the assigned color.”)
4. Select RGB values 33, 141, 205 for the foreground color.
5. Select the Color Replacement tool. Ensure the options have the following settings.
a) Select the Sampling: Continuous icon.
b) From the Limits menu, select Contiguous.
c) In the Tolerance field, type 30%
6. Draw on the image inside the woman’s shirt. Keep the center of the tool on the shirt color, and pixels similar in color to the shirt will be changed to the foreground color. Experiment with various brush settings to change the color of the shirt. (The goal is to erase the ENTIRE background, “Basically, erase the background of the image, but keep the bike and the woman intact and change her blouse color to the assigned color.”)

7. Save your file as My_womanbicylist.psd and close it.

Files Needed for Scenario 2:
  • LogoScramble.psd

Scenario 2
EcoFriendly Travel is sponsoring an outdoor festival known as the Greene City Scramble. The original images were created as raster graphics. They do not scale well when enlarged. They need to be changed to vector-based images. The marketing department would like you to recreate the small, raster-based festival logo as a vector image so they can enlarge it to use on banners at the festival.

DSIN141 – Week 5 Lesson 2:

1. Open LogoScramble.psd.
2. Carefully study the style of the first letter in each word. You will need to manually recreate that style in a later step.
3. Use the Pen tool to trace the outline of the climber. Fill in the shape, and place it next to the words. This will automatically convert the climber into a vector graphic.
4. Recreate the text. The original logo used Century Gothic. If you do not have that font available in your installation of Photoshop, you can choose a different font, such as Comic Sans.
5. Turn the text into a work path. This will automatically turn it into a vector graphic.
6. The letters S, C and G have been styled. This styling is not available in any font, so you will have to recreate it manually. Using the vector editing tools, modify the anchor points of the text to create the unique letter shapes of the S, C, and G.
7. Save your file as My_LogoScramble.psd. Your logo is now a vector-based graphic ready for printing.

Use the Pen tool to trace the outline of the climber. Turn the text into a work path. You are going to at least re-create into your own style the letter shapes of S, C, and G using the Pen Tool.
